A graduate in the United States decided to sue her college after finding herself failing to get a job for himself after graduation.
Trina Thompson, who graduated in the IT degree, filed the lawsuit against Monroe College, a private college located with campuses in New York (Bronx and New Rochelle) and Caribbean nation of St. Lucia. Monroe offers a wide range of degree courses including business, accounting, nursing, hospitality, medical administration, arts, culinary and information technology. Trina got her degree in the Bronx campus, and filed her suit in Bronx Supreme Court.
Trina has not been able to land a job since her graduation and after many months of frustration, she decides to pursue a legal action against her former college. The suit alleged that her college has not assisted her enough and failed to provide adequate job-placement assistance. She is seeking $70,000 she has spent on the tuition fees in the college. Basically, she is on the opinion that by spending that much earning a degree, a guaranteed job will be waiting in the horizon.
While graduating with a CGPA of 2.7, an average CGPA compared to the education industry, Trina believes that her grade should be sufficient for her to be gainfully employed by one of the established companies around. In response, her college has ridiculed the lawsuit, saying that was not done without any due merit.
The college is probably right. She is not doing herself a favor.
